Sunset Session

Modeling, style

Just over a month ago I did a photo shoot with the lovely Chelsea Taylor. She had a vision of a bohemian inspired sunset shoot in a milo field. We made it happen.

I love her spirit and style. I am so happy we were able to combine our passions and collaborate on this project.

Here are a few of my favorite photos:




Fall Fashion with Bonnie Bing

Modeling, style

Bonnie Bing is an incredible role model. She is kind, witty and creative. She knows fashion and she knows how to write about it.

As an aspiring fashion journalist, I am always excited for an opportunity to work with Bonnie. I didn’t have to think twice when asked to book a modeling job for the fall fashion section of The Wichita Eagle.

Crazy for College Hill Deli


With windows surrounding much of the building, College Hill Deli is always flooded with natural light. Located at 3407 East Douglas, it offers indoor seating as well as outdoor patio seating.

Ranging from Mediterranean and Indian dishes to hamburgers, the menu provides something for everyone. There are plenty of healthy options to choose from. One of my latest obsessions is the raspberry chicken salad, which pairs nicely with the homemade hummus. In addition, the desert case is always filled with cakes so beautiful they could serve purely as decoration.

Owner Ali Yassine knows no stranger, making every customer feel welcome and often knows them by name. He makes his rounds to chat with each table, making sure they love what they ordered.

College Hill Deli provides a perfect lunch or dinner spot, along with carry out and catering. It also serves as a place to study. Make it the next stop on your list of restaurants to try in Wichita.

I am My Hair


One week ago I liberated myself.

I made a change that I have wanted to make for a while: I chopped eight inches off of my hair and had color added for the first time.

As a natural redhead I have grown up always hearing what other people think of my hair. From those who have told me to never color it or change it in any way to the era of ‘gingers don’t have souls.’ Trust me, I have heard every ginger joke in the book.

On the first day I met Jen after starting my job at Eric Fisher Salon, she asked if she could balayage my hair. What? A hair stylist who actually wanted to color my hair? This was a first.

The day I decided that it was 100% up to ME whether or not I changed my hair was a good day; the day I did it was even better. I donated my hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program, because a woman battling cancer needs it more than I do.

Thank you Jen for helping me get out of my comfort zone with this much needed change and for enhancing my natural hair color with a few lighter pieces. And thank you to all of my coworkers and friends at EFS who show me everyday the importance of embracing individuality, personal style and how to be an empowered person.
